    Chart showing wrong data (2000)

    I am creating a chart that has a query behind it. The query behind the chart is showing percentages. The chart is showing different percentages than the query. How can I get the percentages to show correctly. I have closed the report and reopened it and still the wrong percentages. Any ideas why this would happen?

    Percentages in MS Chart are iffy, but I think we'd have to see the database.

    I tried the solutions in the article but nothing works. I tried compacting and repairing the database - nada...Should I try recreating the chart?

    If you wish, you can you post a stripped down copy of your database. See <post#=401925>post 401925</post#> for instructions.

    This isn't my database so I hesitate to mess with it - not sure if data is sensitive. It is a totals query behind the chart and also some filtering. Would that have anything to do with the odd behavior?

    The right percentages are showing up in bar charts but not in pie charts. I just thought maybe someone else could be having this problem............
